Broken ankle will likely end B.J. Daniels’ career at USF

We’ve made more than our fair share of jokes around here that South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels has been with the Bulls for seemingly forever. Unfortunately, his time with the program has indeed come to a disappointing and premature end.

Daniels suffered a broken ankle in USF’s 13-6 win over UConn Saturday night. His season and his collegiate career are likely over. It appears that even in victory, something USF hasn’t had often this year, there’s a loss.

Daniels finishes his career with over 8,000 passing yards and 52 passing touchdowns. He will be replaced by backup quarterback Matt Floyd, who has filled in for Daniels before. Floyd will need to guide USF to three straight victories if the Bulls are to make the postseason.

Daniels is, by all accounts, a likable and good guy. He’s had an up-and-down career at USF, but no one should ever have to see their collegiate playing days end like this.

    He’s older than Brandon Weeden, old age just caught up with him.

    what r u talking about burlbradley? Daniels was born in 1989, which would make him 23 yrs old…Weeden was 28 when he was drafted by the browns

    It’s a joke on how long it seems he’s been playing college football…much like jokes about Case Keenum last year. I’m well aware that he’s not actually older than Weeden…nobody is.

    Reason why he seem to have been at USF forever is because he started as a true freshman … Wish you nothing but the best BJ get well!
